Mike Huckabee's comments Sunday that Obama is marching Israelis to "the door of the oven" by agreeing to the Iran nuclear deal. Jonathan A. Greenblatt, the national director of the organization, issued a statement, calling the Republican 2016 hopeful's comments invoking the Holocaust "completely out of line and unacceptable." "Israeli military and security officials have repeatedly said the Obama Administration has been as strong as any other American administration in keeping Israel secure," Greenblat writes.

    Governor’s races in South and Midwest could be lost if party brand becomes too liberal. Centrist Democrats were wiped out in the 2014 elections and in their absence emerged a resurgent liberal movement, embodied most recently by the surprisingly competitive presidential campaign of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. But the suddenly ascendant left — its populist overtones becoming part of the mainstream Democratic pitch — is worrying Democrats who want to compete on Republican-leaning turf. The party lost every competitive gubernatorial and Senate race in the South last year. And Democrats didn’t fare much better in the heartland. Now, as Bernie...

The committee on Monday voted unanimously to support the proposal, three union sources told Reuters. The recommendation will be presented at a July 29-30 meeting of the executive council of the federation, which will make the final decision.

But they were also a reminder, in many ways, of how little the state has changed. Republicans showed how comfortable they are in their newfound status as Arkansas' majority party by inviting Trump, the real estate mogul who has escalated his rhetoric since launching his presidential bid. Democrats, meanwhile, showed they're not ready to give up on the Clinton name as they try to rebuild...

Meanwhile, Sanders is enjoying an incredible surge; the Vermont senator’s favorable rating has doubled since Gallup tested it in March, jumping from 12 to 24 percent.

How about the next six, in March and April? Plus 50. The 11 polls in May and June, when Berniementum first started sweeping the country, came in at +48, and the most recent five in July stand at +41.

    A quick recap: Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, violated guidelines from the National Archives and her own State Department by using her own private email server for professional correspondence, and then destroying whatever messages she deemed destructible. At first Clinton claimed that she needed a single non-governmental email account for "convenience," because she only had one phone. That claim turned out to be provably false. Next, she claimed that it didn’t matter much, because "The vast majority of my work emails went to government employees at their government addresses, which meant they were captured and preserved immediately on the...

An opinion, issued by the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel, says the Inspector General Act of 1978 — which was written by Congress to create the government watchdogs in order to help maintain integrity within their agencies — does not have the authority to override nondisclosure provisions in other laws, most...

The news publication is reportedly seeking records about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s schedules and her former top staffers.

    If you go on Drudge right now you will see the mocking logo I made for a Free Republic thread a few months ago when the Clinton campaign unveiled their new logo. Clearly Drudge reads FR and he's welcome to use my art.

    Senator Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) and Congressmen Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) issued a press release today on a startling discovery they made during a July 17 meeting with International Atomic Energy Agency officials in Vienna: There are two secret side deals to the nuclear agreement with Iran that will not be shared with other nations, with Congress, or with the U.S. public. One of these side deals concerns inspection of the Parchin military base, where Iran reportedly has conducted explosive testing related to nuclear-warhead development. The Iranian government has refused to allow the IAEA to visit this site. Over the...

    DENVER — A Quinnipiac survey released Wednesday morning shows presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton trailing top-tier Republican candidates in Colorado. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has the biggest lead in the hypothetical matchup in the state 15 1/2 months ahead of the General Election. With a nine-point advantage, Scott Walker has the biggest lead in poll in Colorado over Clinton, leading 47 percent to 38 percent. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio leads Clinton 46 percent to 38 percent. And former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is ahead of Clinton 41 percent to 36 percent in the survey.

    The New York Times' First Draft ^ | July 21, 2015 | Staff
    Good Tuesday morning from Washington. Gov. John R. Kasich of Ohio is expected to join the ever-growing field for the Republican nomination, a field that, despite its numbers, has been increasingly overshadowed by Donald J. Trump. Such a development, however, suits at least one other candidate just fine. As Mr. Trump surges in the polls and Republican leaders call for him to drop out of the race after his comments about Senator John McCain’s war record, there is one candidate who hopes Mr. Trump continues to thrive: Hillary Rodham Clinton. Mrs. Clinton has denounced Mr. Trump’s comments about Mexican immigrants,...

    Yesterday, Hilary Clinton defending late-term abortion on Twitter and called Wisconsin’s abortion ban dangerous and unacceptable. As LifeNews previously reported, on July 19th, pro-life Governor Scott Walker signed the Pain–Capable Unborn Protection Act, making Wisconsin the 15th state to ban abortions after 20-weeks of pregnancy. Prior to signing the bill, he said, “At five months an unborn child can feel pain. As a society we should be protecting that child.” But Hillary Clinton has a vastly different view: Governor Walker responded with his own rejoinder calling Clinton out of touch: Unfortunately, if Hillary Clinton becomes our next president she will...

    Yahoo Finance is closely following the money pouring into the 2016 campaign, and we analyzed newly released data to see which companies are aligned with which candidates. (Our full methodology is at the end of this story.) Not surprisingly, Bush and Clinton are pulling down millions from deep corporate connections. But we found a few unexpected things as well. While it’s no secret that Jeb Bush is Wall Street's preferred candidate, for instance, Hillary Clinton more than makes up for that with thousands of donations from attorneys at powerful law firms. Many analysts consider ultraconservative Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas...

    During her nascent presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has called for expanded regulation of the financial system, slammed wealth disparity and pushed for tougher punishment on individual rule breakers. All of that rhetoric has mattered little to Wall Street. Already among the biggest donors to Clinton's political career, employees of some megabanks have funneled big money into her bid for the 2016 nomination. Employees of five financial firms-Citigroup (NYSE: C), Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS), JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM), Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) and Bank of America Merrill Lynch (NYSE: BAC)-gave about $290,000 to Clinton's campaign committee through June 30, according to...

    ....The last time she was in Arkansas as a presidential candidate the Democrats owned everything. They held every statewide elected office and the Republicans didn’t bother to put up candidates in three of the four congressional districts. Both U.S. senators were Democrats. In the state House of Representatives, Democrats held 72 of the 100 seats, and 27 of the 35 state senators were Democrats. Now everything — everything — is reversed.

    There was a brief time this year when it almost seemed like the nation’s biggest newspapers, including the Gray Lady, were going to be giving Hillary Clinton the same level of required scrutiny which should apply to every candidate for elected office. It came when they actually covered the email server story and went into a fair amount of depth on it. Of course, it would have been embarrassing in the extreme to not do so, since everyone else on the planet was talking about it. But all good things must come to an end, as they say, and New...

    PHOENIX—Bernie Sanders is unaccustomed to being heckled by protesters. The self-identified democratic socialist was caught off guard here Saturday when African-American and Latino activists jeered him at Netroots Nation. Sanders’ inability to control the audience – he tried to shut them up and then he tried to yell over them – underscores his broader struggle to expand his appeal and highlights why his summer surge is unlikely to last. The huge crowds Sanders draws are overwhelmingly white, and polling consistently shows that virtually all of his support comes from whites. After Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two contests on...
